Talking about quadocpters, Syma must be the affrodable one. SO today we are going to overiew these products.
Until 2014 drones were considered as expensive toys for rich people. Then Syma came with their $50 toys and rest is a history. Okay, we should mention that Syma is not the only brand that launched cheap drone back in that time, but they are definitely most recognized for that. One of their most successful drones was Syma X5c, there are 4500+ reviews for this drone only on Amazon! Year ago, when it was first announced, it was a real game changer.
Now we’ll do overview of some Syma’s best selling drones. Unfortunately we can’t mention all Syma drones because it would take us few weeks to complete that post
Syma X5C offers very good price/quality ratio. It’s very affordable for what you’re getting, including a 720p HD camera. It will give you about 6 to 8 minutes of flight time, and it will take about 90 minutes to fully re-charge. It’s always good idea to buy extra batteries so you just swap them. Be careful and let motors cool down before you start flying with new battery. Don’t worry too much if you break something or a motor burns out because Syma has made every replacement part available. Use your manual for instructions on how to replace some part of Syma drone.
X11 is another bestseller from Syma! It was one of first small drones by Syma. X11 was extremely well accepted because people were looking for something that they can fly indoors. With it’s size and blade protectors, X11 was perfect fit. There are more than 900 reviews on Amazon with average rate of 4.2 out of 5.0. Pretty good, ha? It does not have a camera but it does have 6 axis stabilization, 2.4 GHz controller and it will give you about 6 minutes of flight time. Range is nothing special, about 30 meters, but that should be enough for most of you guys
A very cheap quadcopter, stable and easy to fly. Comes with its own 2MP camera, which allows a decent FPV experience with small delay. Overall it is a good FPV experience for beginners or and youngsters. Easy to control in calm weather, provides good quality photos and decent video. Real time video transmission may have sometimes a 1 second delay, depending on objects in the area and the distance.
